This painting is a response to human impact on water-masses, with pours and spills of paint suggesting pollution and toxic waste. Utilising varying processes and materials I look to immerse the viewer within an Aquatic realm. Making gestural marks, manipulating paint, repeating patterns, screen print and additions of hard-edge graphic elements are all inspired by the graphics from surfboard design, the work is highly energetic, flowing and at times chaotic. Incorporating various transparent substrates; acetate, films, tapes and polythene as an alternative to more traditional materials. Transparent layering elements reference processes involved in the construction of surfboards and the translucency of the sea itself.

Visual artist, Gavin Mc Crea, grew up in Sion Mills, Tyrone in Northern Ireland. Pursuing a love of surfing he has lived in the west of Ireland for the last 32 years. Along with a 1st in BA Fine Art and being awarded The Hyde Bridge Gallery Graduate Award Solo exhibition 2017, Gavin has also been long-listed for the RDS Visual Arts Awards in both 2016 and 2017.
